Reduced food waste means increased income for farmers in Rwanda
In the richer countries of the world, food gets wasted on the plate. In the poorer countries, the problem is a different one. Here, food is wasted in production, harvesting, processing and storage.At the same time, 815 million people are suffering from hunger. Making production more effective, decreasing post-harvest loss and linking farmers to the markets are all crucial elements in reducing food waste. This is why WFP has launched the Farm to Market Alliance (FtMA).
